Our mission is to provide family strengthening events and care programs for foster families to encourage true, honest, and happy smiles in children.
Our vision is that foster care families have the resources to become successful, which encourages more individuals to become foster parents and positively impact a foster child's life.
Share My Smile (SMS) is a non-profit organization which provides support to foster and adoptive families and children. We provide services to children in foster/adoptive homes including foster, adoptive and birth children who live within the 15* counties in which we serve. At this time, if a child is removed from foster care and reunited with his/her birth family, services will cease. Children receive services based on need, election to partake on behalf of the foster/adoptive parent(s) and under certain circumstances are dependent upon attendance to family support event. For example: a child only receives holiday services if they are in attendance with their foster/adoptive parents at the holiday dinner celebration, which is held annually.
